Aquatic plants can be found in just about any body of water, no matter how large or small they are, as long as conditions for life are present. There are two kinds- saltwater and freshwater- but we're choosing to focus on the former today. These plants include seagrasses, seaweeds, corals, and all kinds of algae. Do you know enough about the life that thrives in the ocean to name all the marine plants from just one picture? 

The ocean is filled with plants of all shapes and sizes. Some are so small that they can't be seen with the naked eye. From microscopic to macroscopic, marine life lives in any body of saltwater on the planet. Some plants grow as low as astroturf, while others are several feet long and can stretch from the ocean's depths to its surface. Do you know your plants enough to survive this quiz? Or will the ocean sweep you further away with every wrong answer you get?
